The majority of patients with diabetes are on one or more medications to treat diabetes. Identifying and understanding the different types of diabetes medications and insulins is an important aspect of care for the registered dietitian nutritionist. With knowledge of different diabetes medical treatment regimens, the RDN will be able to provide evidenced-based nutrition recommendations to the patient, specifically identifying when there is an opportunity for more flexible eating patterns and nutrition recommendations.
